    Good mornin!! Hope whoever reads this is having the most WONDERFUL day!! My question is, in Oct (for my first EVER trip to DW!) we have a split stay between POP & Caribbean. Will they transfer our luggage or do we do it? GONNA BE BEST BDAY EVER!

    Hi Dee! I wish you a most magical day! Congratulations on your first-ever visit to the Walt Disney World Resort! Your excitement is absolutely coming through in your question! It’s great that you gave yourself the birthday gift of not one, but two, Walt Disney World Resort hotels! Let’s see how we can get you from the nostalgia of Disney’s Pop Century Resort to the tropical getaway of Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort!

    Upon arrival at Disney’s Pop Century Resort, notify Bell Services of your planned departure date to Disney’s Caribbean Beach Resort. Let them know that you are requesting a luggage transfer on that day. Bell Services will plan that with you. I usually tip Bell Services when they transfer my bags. I tip once at the first resort and then again at the new resort. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with Bell Services at all the Walt Disney World Resorts that I have visited! I am sure you are going to have an equally wonderful experience!

    Dee! It’s going to be your birthday at the Most Magical Place on Earth, so here’s a PRO TIP for you! Upon arrival at either Disney’s Pop Century Resort, or at one of the Disney Parks, request a birthday button! They are complimentary! Consider it Mickey and Minnie’s birthday gift to you! Everyone is going to want to wish you a happy birthday! You can wear your button on just your birthday or every day of your visit! And, since this is your first-ever visit you can also ask for a First Time Visit button! This will also be complimentary!

    Since this is your first-ever visit, I am going to link a special video to this answer. The video includes yours truly, and my fellow planDisney panelist, Elaine, as we provide our tips for first-time visitors! Enjoy!

    Happy Planning (and Happy Birthday)!
